The AWARDS Program Status feature is an optional database enhancement that enables users to assign a program status for a client, separate from the client's program history stay. This feature can be used to track a client's enrollment or status in a program or system outside of AWARDS, and a corresponding ReportBuilder can be used to report out on that data.
NOTE: Program status information can also be accessed from within individual client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow users to do so. Please keep in mind that any changes made to program status information via the Services - Individual module are reflected within the face sheet, and vice versa.
Because the Program Status feature is optional, it is not automatically available in all databases. When requested (using the Enhancement Request Form below), it is turned on behind-the-scenes in AWARDS by Foothold Technology for individual programs. Staff in programs for which the Program Status feature have been turned on must have the following permissions in order to use it:
Program Chart Access
Display Any Chart Records Buttons
Display Chart Records Services - Individual Button
Display Chart Records Profile Button (optional - to work with program status info from within client face sheets if the face sheet has been configured to allow it)
NOTE: Permissions are assigned using the Permissions Maintenance feature. If you do not have access to that feature and need a permission listed here, please contact your supervisor or your local Help Desk for assistance.
